When it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense, it’s pick your poison. While Michael Vick steals the headlines, the team is more than capable of hurting you with other weapons.
“It’s more than just Michael Vick,” Zach Zaidman said on the Boers and Bernstein Show. “I think what makes the Eagles scary is the fact that you have [DeSean] Jackson on one side, [Jeremy] Maclin on the other, the tight end [Brent] Celek and a running back in [LeSean] McCoy who can really do some damage.”

The stats back up the fact that the Eagles are full of offensive weapons who can score from almost anywhere on the field.
“[The Eagles] have 11 touchdowns outside of the redzone, the most in the NFL, and the Bears have done a pretty good job this season of not giving up those big plays,” Zaidman said.
While the defense has all the tools to slow down and stop the Eagles’ offense, that doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of getting burned. For the Bears to win this Sunday, they might need a complete game from all phases.
“It’s going to be a real test for the defense, because I think the Bears best defense against the Eagles might be [the Bears’] offense. And they have to have one of those mistake free games. [Jay] Cutler has to play at a high level. And your asking the offensive line to do a number on a team that does a very good job sacking the quarterback.”
